Gliding in Washington, DC



Ladies and Gentlemen, after several days of anticipation and one sleepless night of editing, I present to you: Gliding in Washington, DC. Join our hero, Matt, as he meets up with the DC Segway User's Group for his first time on a Segway Human Transporter! For the first time in the history of the World Wide Web,* you will get a first-person view of what it's like to ride (or "glide") through our Nation's Capital on a Segway. Excitement! Humor! Speed! Adventure! Heckling Hillary Clinton!

Highly recommended.**

* Well, at least on my World Wide Web.
** Must be 16 or older. No one over 250 pounds, please. (Segway's limitation, not mine. I am a friend to all, including fatties!)

WOW. I am really impressed!! I liked it when you zig-zagged on the sidewalk. I was waiting for you to wipe out, but you didn't!!

Thanks Di! I am seriously *this close* to just plunking down my credit card. Zig-zagging (or "slaloming") was a blast, and I can't wait to do it again. I'm sure I'll wipe out soon though. As the Segway people told me, for the next 10 hours of Segway riding, I will be very dangerous. I have had just enough experience to feel far more skilled than I am. Heh. So they say... ;-)

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing...

I think I just figured out why George W. Bush is so dangerous!

This is great! I especially liked the wicked witch splicing and the crash and the sad look of the guy with the low battery. thrilling.
